Astaroth, formerly known as Esther, is a former fallen angel that was created by God, that became one of the Prime Demons and the progenitor of the 29th Pillar, the Duke Clan of Astaroth. She is the original possessor of the Kankara Formula and the ancestor of Lord Astaroth and his children, Ajuka Beelzebub and Diodora Astaroth.
She is a major antagonist of the Demons Arc and then a minor protagonist for the rest of the story, High School DxD: Mightverse.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Astaroth is a beautiful young girl looking in her late teens of a child has two horns curving downwards on the back and sides of her heads behind her ears. She has pink hair done in shoulder-length twin-tails with two tiny red hats on each side of her head. Astaroth wears an elaborate black-and-red gothic lolita-styled outfit, consisting of ruffles on her shoulder, throat, and right hip; a ribbon on her chest; pink lace on her chest and waist; a double layered skirt; and a ruffled purple handkerchief on her right hip. She wears fingerless gloves with elaborate pieces of metal on her arms and she wears red-and-white striped thigh-high stockings on her legs with black ballet shoes on her feet. She has an axe guitar whose black head and red body are of the same material and appearance as the metal pieces on her gloves.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Astaroth has a rather negative personality. She lacks self-confidence, believing herself to be inferior to others demons in both appearance and ability, and has trouble interacting with strangers, especially large crowds.
Even with that, Astaroth is also a great mentor to turn to if in need of assistance especially if that assistance is needed to make important political or business connections. According to many legends, Astaroth serves as a council to both humans and demons though she seems to have a preference towards human affairs. This is possibly because Astaroth seems to have a conscience when it comes to giving advice and does not want her wisdom to be associated with good or ill intent.
She also has a passionate love for music. So much so that she often uploads home-made music videos, and pursues a career as an idol despite her stage fright.
Interestingly enough, although Astaroth is considered to be part of the evil trinity, she is only willing to give power to those who seek her help in order to accomplish good deeds. It is said that if anyone attempts to summon her for ill intentions, she will refuse to give them assistance.
She had also developed an immense hatred for her fellow prime demon Leviathan, who returned this feeling likewise. It needed both Satan and Lucifer to keep the two from starting a civil war within Hell.
History[edit | edit source]
Fall from Heaven[edit | edit source]
She was on Lucifer's side during the War in Heaven, and was cast down to Hell alongside all other rebel-angels. Afterwards, she was present at Pandemonium during Lucifer's Rally after being freed, officially declaring herself as an enemy of God forever.
It's said that after Lucifer conquered Hell but before the Seven Great Satans came to be, there was an evil trinity between Lucifer, Beelzebub and Astaroth.
Modern times [edit | edit source]
The Demon was said to instigate cases of Demonic Possession, most notably that of the Loudun nuns in France in the 16th century. The nuns accused a priest, Father Urbain Grandier, of causing their possession. At Grandier’s trial, a handwritten “confession” of his was produced detailing his Pact with the Devil, witnessed and signed by Astaroth herself and several other Demons.
